    Is your home directory full? It either is full as stated or you do not have write permissions to the directory you are trying to write to. To check if a partition is full, either right-click in the folder in the window and choose properties to see, or from the command line

    cd /locatio/to/check ###obviously change this to the relevent location
    df -h
